Place to criticize energy savings policies in computer labs?
Is it appropriate to start a thread to gripe about 5 minute auto-logouts in computer labs? This includes some Linux computer labs. You see, I used to use public computer labs a lot, and I have a pet peeve about them. Some public access computers constantly lock me out and dim my screen after only 5 or 10 minutes of inactivity, so if I'm studying a book and using the computer at the same time it means I have to keep publicly using my password! Frustrating! Do I need to write to Energy Star? Should I contact the secretary of the UN? Should I call 911 perhaps? Is there someone here who can make all the bad computer labs change their ways?
